ISDT FD-100 Discharger - Laziness & Procrastination Has Met Its Match.

By Larry H. 10 months ago 4196 Views No comments

Okay - I am fully aware that there is nothing "ultra exciting" about a product like this, especially when compared to other hot helis, jets and other bits and bobs of pure RC goodness. So why get excited (at all?) over something like a discharger? Well, if you're anything like me and have a poor habit of storage charging after a long fly day, this device may be the saving grace you're in search of.

LiPo batteries have certainly dropped in price over the years, but there is still an investment in such purchases - especially when you have many on hand. So, taking care of your batteries is key to maximizing the life of said batteries, and for me, that means making sure all my LiPo batteries are all properly storage charged at the end of my day of flying, or at the very least, the following day. However, more often than not, that doesn't happen, which is why the ISDT FD-100 will be my new best friend once the flying day has commenced.

The Pulse Defender - And How It Could Have Spared A Broken Heart.

It was literally the perfect day. Gorgeous weather, great friends, nearly zero wind, and best of all, a killer plane - my 3D Hobby Shop 60" Yak-55M. You don't get too many days like this, and so far, the day had been exceptional, with back to back flights and a whole lot of RC fun.

My Yak-55M was a seasoned veteran, with three epic seasons of flying under her belt. From Russia with love, this plane was a pure joy to fly, and was no doubt the best flying aircraft I had ever flown. Powered by a T-Motor 4120-7 550kV power house that was harnessed to a 16x7 prop, endless verticals awaited. This plane was rock solid, predictable and massively fun to fly.

As with all RC aircraft, somewhere precariously hidden from sight is an expiration date, equating to the doom of your beloved bird. I have yet to find one on the models I fly, but it's there - lurking, waiting and ready to strike with impunity. And unless you manage to unearth the ominous date of your prized models demise, a crash is going to happen, and it's going to hurt. And man, did this one hurt bad.

LiPo batteries are just plain awesome. With a rich energy density that equates to extended run times & epic levels of power, LiPo batteries make our hobby great.

Even though LiPo batteries have dropped in price by a very large margin over the passing years, these batteries are still an investment - especially when it comes to larger packs for bigger RC applications. So, when it comes to maximizing cycle life and overall performance, here's some tips we want to share with you, because we want to make sure your LiPo experience is an epic one.
